Since voicemail has been the top searched word over the past 5 years, we thought it would be a good idea to blog about it. So without further ado, here’s a list of frequently asked questions we put together for you:
What is the voicemail number?
Regular voicemail: +1 416 821-6549
Visual voicemail for iPhones : +1 647 839-6178
Don’t worry about the area code being different than your own; these two numbers apply to all Fido customers across Canada.
How do I register my voicemail number in my phone?
If you bought your phone from Fido your voicemail number is already registered on your phone and you don’t need to change anything.
If you didn’t buy your phone from Fido, proceed as follows:
iPhone: Dial *5005*86*+16478396178# (may not work on all iPhone models).
This is for customers without Visual Voicemail:
Android: Go to Settings > Call Settings > Voicemail Settings > Voicemail Number and input +14168216549 (instructions may varies depending on your OS/model)
Wireless Home Phone: Dial *983*866*(Voicemail Retrieval Number)# from the home phone handset.
Other Phones: instructions may vary, so it’s best you check out the manufacturer’s user guide to program your voicemail.
What is my access code?
You are prompted to choose your own code when you first access your voicemail.
